  I have wanted to get back into my horse drawing for a long time and the other night I did just that. This drawing was done in pencil, Conte crayon and acrylic paint. It is fairly big ( 30 x 40" ) and is ready to be transferred to canvas.

  "Stellars Jay" watercolor on paper
     This was a fairly quick watercolor. Loosely applied and quickly painted, watercolor takes on a life of it's own.

  A very kind woman recently remarked that I am a master of watercolor and for that kindness I am  truly thankful. But. I am concerned that the term 'master' carries with it an implication or indictment of finality, that in mastering something there is no longer anything in the medium to be discovered. One of the reasons that watercolor fascinates is the possibility of something new. Bob Ross spoke of  "happy accidents " and that happiness is something I look forward too.

  South of Fort Collins, Colorado.                           11 x 33"                     Acrylic on panel 
    I was recently asked to speak on Western Art at the University of Colorado. In the course of our discussion I was asked why I am doing these paintings and I was hard-pressed to find an answer. I love the plains of Colorado and Wyoming and am fascinated by the skies we see in the West. But I have come to realize that it's that line that defines the meeting of Sky and Earth that I am most interested in.

This piece is coming together nicely but I can see that it still needs a bit of work.
